Dogbrick (9085) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Sample at the Badge-Whore Bowl (OSU vs AL) tasting on 01/01/2015. The beer is a dark brown color with some ruby around the edges and a medium light beige head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, hops and pine. Light-bodied with flavors of roast malt, resiny hops and a bit of citrus. The finish is malty up front with a piney hops aftertaste. I was honestly skeptical about an Italian Cascadian Dark Ale but I was pleasantly surprised with this above average brew.

Rune (8881) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2012
Poured from a bottle at Ølfestival 2012, One Pint exhibition stand, thanks to Skinnyviking for a taster. Dark amber coloured body, tiny beige head. Smell of sweaty hops with discreet malty sweetness. Malt-fruity flavour containing herbal hops and slightly roasted malts. Bittering malty endnotes. Satisfying (Copenhagen, 10.05.2012).

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2013
Keg North Bar Leeds 12/11/13. A dark brown coloured beer with a white head and lace. A nice hoppy dark beer. Sweeter than our BIPAs with caramel and chocolate notes. Hops are good though for sure. Tasty and moreish with a nice body. A bit of a grassy edge. Lots of oranges. Liked this a lot although stylistically an inbetweener.

jercraigs (8276) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2013
2013-05-31. Dark brown body, creamy tan head. 4+ Aroma is interestingly fruity, light notes of malt and green vegetation. 6++. Flavour is similarly fruity, light bitterness throughout, mild malt has some dusty caramel undertones and something vaguely leafy and herbal that I can’t put my finger on. Average bodied palate, modest carbonation. Okay. Bottle at Mondial de la Biere 2013, Montreal

Scopey (8230) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2014
Keg at the Well & Bucket, during the London Bimble. It pours cloudy ruby with a thick beige head. The nose is earthy, toasty, rich roast and charred earth. The taste is bitter, roasty, toast, earth, charred wood and peppery grapefruit with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Good flavour for the abv. Nice stuff.

JorisPPattyn (8221) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2014
Draught Very fine & dense, good pale cream head over ruby-brown beer. Dry hopbales, ureum, hessian sacks, immortelles. Roasted, meaty, with coloured malts and subdued, but present hops. Finish is bonedry. Woody, straw. Quite slick, medium bodied, well-carbonated feel. Very dry-authentic, but it misses a bit of character. A bit, mind.

Fin (8078) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle picked up by my dad in a Eataly, Genoa, late Sept/early Oct 2013. consumed at home Saturday 12th October 2013 Pours black with off-white head. A very hoppy nose with some resiny pine in particular showing. Mmmhh.. this is a tasty decent black IPA, there are flavours of caramel and roasted malts coming through but this is very hoppy and the finish is bitter and dry. Really like this.

[10/14/13] Draught at Open Baladin in Rome. Very dark amber-brown color with a beige head. Aroma of citric and piney hops, some maltiness and a fruity note. Flavor has some sweetish maltiness with a bit of caramel, light fruitiness, a light roasty touch, citric hops with piney notes and a bitter finish, a bit grapefruity. Medium-bodied. Nice.
